Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether he is writing about Godzilla, Alfred E. Neuman, Ava Gardner, concealed weapons, or X-ray specs, Jarret Keene is always building a bigger world, tearing it down, and then putting it back together, each time creating a new place. As American a poet as Patti Smith or Walt Whitman, Keene is something else as well: legitimate pop-culture royalty whose award-winning poetry has been published in more than 50 literary journals and magazines. Monster Fashion is apt to change your idea of beauty. William Trowbridge, author of Flickers

Synopsis:

Pop culture meets and mates with poetic formalism.

Synopsis:

Popular culture has never been so poetically observed as in this debut collection by Jarret Keene. Insights into contemporary social issues, including abandoned babies and concealed weapons, complement reflections on Aubrey Beardsley and Mad's Alfred E. Neuman, among other unusual subjects. Unexpected and accessible, Keene's work is at once thought-provoking and timely.

About the Author

Jarret Keene is author of the poetry collection MONSTER FASHION and the rock-band bio THE KILLERS: DESTINY IS CALLING ME, and editor of THE UNDERGROUND GUIDE TO LAS VEGAS. He lives in Las Vegas.
